TECH: Unicode & Micro$oft font pack

Do any of you have the URL for downloading the Micro$oft
font pack (the Arial/Times New Roman/Courier New/etc.
families that encode Latin Extended-A plus scattered
bits of Unicode)? I have them, but don't have the
address -- and the M$ site is so slow that I can't
get their search engine to work on time!

I'm planning to make copies of some of my pages in
Unicode, taking advantage of the new characters (I love
being able to use macrons instead of graves!), as a
sort of survey for visitors' browsers. I can begin by
asking you all: do you have Unicode fonts as your
browsers' default fonts? Are your browsers Unicode-

On a different issue: does anyone know of a good, free
or non-crippled shareware Unicode editor (other than
Unipad) that allows the user to enter characters using
simple shortcuts, remapping the keyboard as needed?
(normal keyboard remappers obviously don't work; are
there any Unicode-aware remappers?). I can't be bothered
with using the mouse to select a character cell from a
palette each time I need it...
